outstanding 1991 show
This Cap Center run was certainly a highlight on this spring tour, a tour in which the Hornsby attended shows outpaced the Welnick only shows by a long shot. The 3/20 and 3/21 shows are definitely two of the best of the tour for sure, both having a very laid back feel to them.
The song selection for the first set here is excellent, highlighted by a long and spacey "Birdsong." The second set opening "Victim" is one the strongest version of this song IMO and flows effortlessly into a very solid and in the pocket "Scarlet-> Fire", a great version of this pairing in a year that had many (check out the very under appreciated version from 9/4/1991 in Richfield). The "Stir It Up Jam" is a great surprise here...I caught the second one in Atlanta on 4/5/1991 before it was scrapped for good.
All in all, a very solid 1991 effort, and definitely has that "Cap Center feel" to it. They always played great there. The SBDs are definitely Welnick heavy and very hot digital sounding like a lot of 1991 stuff, I prefer the auds on this show.

Fire and other highlights
Mississippi 1/2 Step has a good but less than perfect start, but it takes off excellently...beautiful!
Candy Man is great throughout.
I differ with the comment below about Victim. It is not great --at least not until the outro begins. That section I agree is cool.
Scarlet is played just fine, but the Fire here, unexpectedly, is one the best I've heard. I know--it isn't even during one of their best eras. Garcia finds the pocket effortlessly and grooves in it extensively until it nearly has nothing left--goes into a mellow and also groovy Stir It Up jam. I must acknowledge that Hornsby's absence is a positive as his accordion doesn't mess up this truly wonderful Fire.
The Interplay between Garcia and Welnick in NFA is pretty tight, also.
Five stars for Fire alone although Candy Man is also worthy. I am not rating the rest.

Some Great Moments
This show sounds fantastic and is especially impressive to me for its Victim. I had the pleasure of seeing an early version of the song in Oxford ME in July of 88 and it was a clunker then for sure. Lots of us scratching our heads- we knew they were playing new songs but unless you were high on the taping trees or knew someone who was, you didn't have a recorded version to hear of Victim and Foolish yet.
I remember thinking "I can't see how I'll ever end up liking that song!" well her you go- this one I like.
